Bystanders help out when $15,000 from armoured car hits the road in New York

STONY BROOK, N.Y. – Money doesn’t grow on trees, but it apparently does flutter like leaves in the wind.

Three bystanders helped pick up $15,000 in dollar bills that flitted across a Long Island road after falling out of an armoured car on Halloween, according to two volunteer police officers at the scene.

“I’ve never seen that much money in one place,” said one of the auxiliary officers, George Fuhr, 76. “It was wild.”

A sack of cash apparently tumbled onto Nicolls Road on Wednesday because the armoured car’s door wasn’t completely closed. The bills burst from the bag after cars ran it over.

Fuhr and his patrol partner, Ralph Cabattente, 73, stopped when they came across the commotion and directed traffic while waiting for Suffolk County police.

Fuhr said the bystanders were able to recover all but $128 of money and return it to its rightful owners.
